How a Photo Help A Missing Father

Missing persons are daily adverts we see on social media and local dairies. Look at a case where there are a missing person and no photo at all just the description which seems not to make sense. The search will be long and tiresome. A father in Toronto had a mental illness, one day he was left at home by the son who used to take good care of him. It had been his norm to rush to the grocery to buy fresh fruits for the grandfather. He never noticed that despite his illness, he knew how to open the door since it was risky to close it from outside. Usually, the father would open the door and just rest on the backyard. When the son came back he found the missing. It never hit him that probably he must have lost his way. He went on doing his normal duties. What now made him think otherwise was the long-time the father took. He now started making calls to the neighbors if at all they could have seen him. Luckily enough, when he was walking on the streets someone noticed that he was not speaking the coherent language and decided to take a photo of him and posted on the local Facebook page and Whatsapp group. In a bid for the son to also try and post the photo on the same pages to seek help, he came across the father’s photo. He communicated with the person who posted the photo to get directions and that is how he finally traced the father and brought him back home.

Imagine if there was no panorama picture…

of the father. This was going to be the longest night for the son. He could have spent time and money in police stations, hospitals, and even funeral homes just to randomly check if he could have found his way there. Panoramic photos come in handy to save in such situations. It makes the search easy and fast.

In this case, technology was of help…

This is someone who was driving and took the photo of the man from a distance for he could not know how he was going to react. Whether he used a digital camera or a smartphone, the camera properties made it easy to get a clear picture of the father for fast recognition. It saved the government the paperwork that could be involved to trace the families. If the son was also not a member of these local groups then he could have had a hard time getting the father.

When you visit the police stations to look…

for a missing person, they need his photo to publish it on the dailies for easy trace. A simple photo is a savior in a long search for a missing person. That is the reason it is important to always have a backup of someone’s image for you never know when you might use it.

How Would a Disappearance Victim Survive with Water Filter System

This is a solid substance in the water filter. It means that any solids that may be in water cannot pass this layer. Besides, it is responsible for removing bacteria and impurities that may find its way on this layer.GravelSome impurities will have their way to the final water output. Small pebbles and gravel come in handy to form a permeable layer to trap dirt and organisms in the water.

Just like in the Reversed Osmosis System where it uses the principle of semi permeability is the same role of gravel in a homemade filter system. Cotton wool This is the last layer in a filter system. It also has yet another role. It keeps the other entire layer from finding their way to the water since they are also impurities in their way. A disappearance victim may not have all the privileges to get modern technologies to filter water. He still can enjoy clean and safe water. However, there is no 100 percent guarantee of safety especially when there are chemical impurities which only need a chemical process which is powerful in the modern water filter system. There is no need for a disappearance system to rely on dirty water when there is this simple filter system he can use to purify his drinking water.

The modern water filter system is an upgraded version of a homemade water system. For commercial use, it may not be professional to display such a filter system. But look at a scenario where you are a disappearance victim and you do not have the privileges of accessing the modern water filter system. You cannot drink the water just from the source. This is the time you think of your primary and high school days where you had to use old plastics and readily available material to make a filter system. With these materials, you will get the right one for water use.

The homemade water system uses the concept of natural water where the earth crust is made of different layers of which each has a role to play in water filtrations. What do you need when away in the wilderness?

  • A plastic bottle
  • Knife
  • Cotton wool
  • Sand
  • Small pebbles
  • Charcoal
  • Drinking glass
  • Water

All one needs is to cut the bottom of the plastic using the knife, on it place the cotton balls on the upper part of the bottle. Stuff it up to two inches. The next layer should be charcoal of the same height and then place the pebbles. The next layer should be clean sand of double-height. With this simple method, you now have a simple filter system. Just place the dirty water. At this point, you must have put the bottle water upside down. Pour water on it and place the filter on the glass waiting for your clean water. As simple as it may sound, you will have clean and safe water. All the layers you place on this effect when it comes to removing impurities.

The role of layers on the water filtration system

Charcoal

In the modern filter system, there is the use of a carbon filter to remove impurities. This is the same role that charcoal has. Remember the main component of activated charcoal is carbon. Besides, it absorbs any odor that may be left behind by the dirty water. It is also the power behind the taste of even contaminated water.

Sand

This is a solid substance in the water filter. It means that any solids that may be in water cannot pass this layer. Besides, it is responsible for removing bacteria and impurities that may find its way on this layer.

Gravel

Some impurities will have their way to the final water output. Small pebbles and gravel come in handy to form a permeable layer to trap dirt and organisms in the water. Just like in the Reversed Osmosis System where it uses the principle of semi permeability is the same role of gravel in a homemade filter system.

Cotton wool

This is the last layer in a filter system. It also has yet another role. It keeps the other entire layer from finding their way to the water since they are also impurities in their way. A disappearance victim may not have all the privileges to get modern technologies to filter water. He still can enjoy clean and safe water. However, there is no 100 percent guarantee of safety especially when there are chemical impurities which only need a chemical process which is powerful in the modern water filter system. There is no need for a disappearance victim to rely on dirty water when there is this simple filter system he can use to purify his drinking water.

Useful Home Products That Can Be Donated To Families Of Disappeared People

In the world today, an individual vanishes- a man returning from work, a daughter trekking home from school, or even a young man who is out enjoying with his friends- and no one seems to be concerned. Well, victims of enforced disappearance are those who have literally vanished from their community and loved. They usually go missing because state agents or organized crime groups take them from their home or grab them from the streets. Since these people are never released, their fate remains just like that unknown.

Since their families and friends do not know where they are, they are left devastated and there is very little chance that anyone will come to help them. They, therefore, experience slow mental anguish. Not knowing whether their father or mother, daughter or son is still alive or not and how they are being treated often leaves them living in limbo. Since men are mostly targeted, the families they live behind may not have any proper source of livelihood. Its, therefore, of great help to donate some useful home products to them. Here are the top 4 useful things that can be donated to the families of the disappeared people:

❑ Pressure washers

As one of the most useful home appliances, a pressure washer is perhaps the best donation that you can give to these families. These families might be so much devastated and financially constrained that they will not be able to afford a pressure washer. A pressure washer and/or kids washer and dryer will, therefore, make their washing easy, save them time and keep both their environment and families safe. Overall, a pressure washer can greatly help them at home.

❑ Water heater

These families may also be in great need of a water heater. Just like other home appliances a water heater usually comes with a lot of benefits that these families can enjoy. For instance, it will go a long way in enhancing energy in their homes. Remember, high-efficiency water heaters usually use less energy as compared to the standard ones. Besides, they require low maintenance, they are eco-friendly, are convenient, are durable and they use less water.

❑ Refrigerators

Refrigerators are also some of the best donations that you can give to the families of the disappeared people. Nowadays a refrigerator is not only part of life but also used in every house. Since it’s used to cool both water and food and works at low temperature it can greatly help these families who may not be able to afford one. More so, since they spend most of their time searching for their loved ones they can use refrigerators to preserve their food.

❑ Coffee maker

If you appreciate the flavor of coffee then you know why every home should have at least one coffee maker. Most people in the world over usually start their day with a cup of coffee. This will provide them with the energy that they need and remove all the fatigue that they had before. It’s, therefore, a very good donation to give to the families of the disappeared people.

Nowadays, it is very important to be practical in many things and being practical in donations that will be given to people would be greatly appreciated especially when those donations can be used in everyday life.
